Hey everyone,

I'm having a little problem with filtering issues in JIRA. I want to filter all issues that have the priority equal to the priority of another issue with a given issue key. Something like: "Priority = Priorityof(TEST-XY).

How can I solve this and does the solution depend on wether I have a custom field or not?


Best regards,

You can not do this out of the box. The easiest way is via ScriptRunner's expression JQL function.

It's probably easiest to write your own, here is one that gets the priority of the provided issue. Just drop it in the directory as per https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/custom-jql-functions.html#_quick_start

Not sure why you would want to do this - could you not simply ensure that all issues have the correct priority and then search for all issues for a given priority e.g. priority in (high, highest)?
